The Catalan Pyrenees offer a wide variety of attractions for visitors: landscape, culture, adventure sports, active tourism and gastronomy. Discover all that this enchanting destination has to offer
The Pyrenees are home to Catalonia’s highest peak, the Pica d’Estats (3,143 m), on the border between the Pallars Sobirà region and the French department of Ariège, as well as to some stunning valleys, such as Camprodon, Núria, Boí, Vall Ferrera and Cardós, among others.
It is a region that offers a numerous selection of mountain and adventure sports and provides a variety of tourism options, such as the chance to hike among volcanoes, go rafting, cycle on the more than 100 marked trails, or spend a night star gazing, camped out in the mountains.
With the ski season about to commence, the snow adventures on offer in Catalonia are particularly relevant: Ten alpine and six Nordic ski stations. Seven of those 16 stations have been certified for their family holiday facilities: La Molina, Vall de Núria, Vallter 2000, Masella, Port Ainé, Espot and Boí Taüll.
The Pyrenean towns also preserve some important Romanesque art heritage, with examples such as the group of churches in the Vall de Boí and the church of Sant Climent de Taüll. Delicious mountain cuisine made with local produce, golf and health and wellness tourism are some of the other attractions to be found in this fantastic mountain destination.
